Join TIA

Transparency International (TI) is the world’s leading anti-bribery and anti-corruption civil society organisation. With more than 100 national chapters worldwide and an international secretariat in Berlin.

We engage at the highest levels of business and government and own pivotal global research benchmarks such as the annual Corruption Perceptions Index and the Global Corruption Barometer.

Corruption is one of the greatest challenges of the contemporary world. It drives economic inequality and is a major barrier in poverty eradication. Corruption undermines good government, distorts public policy, leads to the misallocation of resources, harms private and public sector development, and particularly hurts the poor. Tackling corruption is only possible with the cooperation of a wide range of stakeholders. Engagement with the private sector to strengthen integrity systems and business practice is vital.

Join TIA as an individual member, cornerstone or corporate member to promote and champion transparency, accountability and integrity.

There are also opportunities for professional services organisations to support the work of TI Australia as a financial member and through the provision of pro bono services.

Individual Membership

TI Australia’s work is supported by volunteers, including Directors and Members. Individual TI Australia Members are invited to participate in local meetings and events from time-to-time. Read TIA’s Constitution and enquire about membership online or download a Membership Application form.
